I have a new SONY alpha a200. I'm having some trouble taking pics of firefighters in my dept. The coats have a reflective tape that flashes back into my camera when taking photos. A lot of the shots are at night and have motion so I need to use the flash. What are my options to cut down on the flash back?

    I am pretty new to photography as well, but I try and lend a hand. You will need a off-camera flash. You can get frame to hold the flash away from the camera to help with the "flash back". Best case is to have some one else hold the flash 3 or 4 feet away, gives you the light you need but the direction will not be right back at the lens. hope this helps
